This is too much. Are there really so many people in GP that don't have cars that they cannot drive their students to school? Moreover, who walks to toddler and nursery centers? Do our children seriously not own winter clothes such that they cannot be outside for any length of time?

Amen!! I think it is more about teachers not wanting to make the cold, and sometimes long, drive in.
